I have noticed this has gotten rather mixed reviews, here and elsewhere... But I really think it deserves a little better...;)

The pricetag however is way off the charts, especially considering it is not much different from it's predeccessor, (the Honey Glow), and also comes in a smaller tube... Bad, bad, Kanebo...

But apart from that this is really a very good self-tanner! And especially so for women who are not 16 anymore... but suffer from drier skins, less baby smooth wrinklefree skin...

To me this is one of the smoothest self-tanners out there! It gives really even color and it is hard to make it streak. Instead it makes my skin silky soft, even though it is a gel! And that is unusual for self-tanners in general, since the coloragent in them tends to dry all skintypes a little, making it extra important for drier skintypes to exfoliate and moisturize extra when using a selftanner...
But this is a bit of an exception to that rule...

The color is very nice. Smooth and a bit warm in nuance caramel brown. Not yellow or orange however, but not sandy either, so it gives you that look you have right after you come home from a good day in the sun when you haven't burned...;)

Some say that this doesn't give much color... That is truly not my experience. It gives quite a bit of color in just one application for me, and with more applications you can go quite bronze with this. However, the color develops rather slowly. And the full result doesn't show in the three- four hours that most brands have gotten us used to, but rather takes ten to 12 hours to develop fully...
And that can be good to know, so you don't expect a super result 30 minutes after putting it on... This is therefore not your quickfix but rather your longterm solution...;)
There is no selftan out there, that I know of, that fades better and more evenly than this does... which at least for me counts for something...

For me this is my most luxourious and perfect combo-product...
I use this once a week after showering and exfoliating. It gives me my base tan, and then I continue everyday or every other day with a gradually building selftan/moisturizer to slightly deepen the color but mostly to maintain the level of tanning and the even result throughout the week without drying out my skin.

And for that this works very well, except for my wallet of course...;)

This is one of the newest ST on the market. It replaces Honey Glow. I have used every ST possible: Chanel, Dior, Sisley, Cosmetics, Clarins, La Prairie, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Helena Rubinstein, Lavera, Self tanning towlets, spray cabins,... you give me a name, I surely have tried it. This is not as expensive as you might thinking, cause you get a big bottle (5,1 oz.) for it's price. 3x Dior, Chanel... at 75 euro. Not a bargain, but still pretty affordable. The packeging is really nice: a golden dop, and a refined tube. Texture: gel. The description says gel-cream. Well, that's not true. It's a clear gel, which surprisingly is able to moisturize the skin. Well done. Negative: it is a bit sticky and it smells wierd. Not the typical ST smell, but an alcoholic smell which thank god fades pretty fast. The ST smell eventually pops on, just like every other ST except Dior. Result: spot free golden skin. It's fool proof and the color last pretty long. I definetely like it, altough Kanebo's skin care range has dissapointed me. Why I will not buy it again? Chanel in Bronze is just better. Color is more believeble and it isn't sticky. Color of Dior is also better. It's a good ST but not the best I'm afraid. I'm currently using it on my body mixed with the dark version of Clarins face ST and it makes me totally bronzed. UPDATE: I already hate the smell and the fact that it doesn' give as much color as I would like to. It's a very light ST, nothing for those who want to look bronzed!
